vmware workstation 9 installation error

It is not about Lotus software but helps to solve one vmware workstation installation error.
Error message during installation:

Workaround:
  1. Exit installation process
  2. Go to this page: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1308
  3. Go down to "Remove these registry keys:"
  4. You see a key structure like this
    1. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\VMware, Inc.\VMware Workstation
    2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\VMware, Inc.\Installer\VMware Workstation
  5. Open the registry editor
  6. Go down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\
  7. If you have  VMware, Inc. key, delete it
